Further details on session: This session will explore the issues around costing and pricing of research projects. The systems used by the GFU to cost projects will be discussed and shown, the issues to consider when looking at the costs of a project will be identified and approaches on how to reduce the costs of project (to fit into funder maximum limits) will be shared.
